Before I start, I hope that everyone at Camelclutchblog.com, especially my editor Eric Gargiulo, and their families had a great holiday. I hope that my readers also had a great holiday as well. I did as well as my beagle Ace Frehley. I thought I would get a blog done for you before we all celebrate the coming of the new year.
As 2012 comes to a close, it is time for me to write a blog about the high points, and the low points of the year in sports. As sports fans, we had quite a very interesting year. We have had great moments, shocking moments, sad moments, and great comebacks. Hopefully, in 2013, there will be many more.
As I said, a lot has happened in 2012, so it will be hard to sum it up, but I will do my best. I will be putting the ones that I ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 17 in the National Football League!
- Tampa Bay closes out the 2012 regular season with a nice win against a not-so-competitive Atlanta Falcons team in Week 17. I’ve said it all season long and it’s only fitting that I say it again, Tampa is a good team and one that people should look out for in 2013. Really like what they accomplished this season, would’ve loved to seen them compete for a playoff spot in the final weeks.
- Not the way Atlanta wanted to end the regular season I’m sure but now they can look towards the playoffs and hope that the defensive injuries they suffered on Sunday aren’t that bad. Not sure what to think of this Falcons team heading into the playoffs but I’ll tell you this much, they don’t look like a ..click here to read more

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 16 in the National Football League!
- Congrats to the Falcons on clinching the #1 seed in the NFC and having home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Personally, I believe while it’s a tremendous feat, they may be the weakest #1 seed in the NFL playoffs in some time. Their passing offense is great but their run game and defense can be shaky depending on the week. Let’s see if the ATL can make me eat my words yet again this season.
- Congrats to Calvin Johnson on breaking Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving record! Can we now say that the “Madden Curse” is done?
- Quietly, the Green Bay Packers are continuing to emerge in the NFC. While it is the Titans, they kept the momentum going throughout this one. Things are getting interesting for the Pack…

Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 13 in the National Football League!
- Great win for the Atlanta Falcons in primetime as they improve to 11-1 on the season. I have been very critical of the Falcons ability against good teams all season and they proved in back-to-back weeks they can pull it off. Now they just need to show up come playoff time…
- Say what you will about the New Orleans Saints but they gave it a pretty valiant effort these last couple of weeks. It will take a miracle for them to be playoff bound in 2012 as they get their 7th loss of the season here in Week 13. I wonder if the “Sean Payton magic” will be able to get this team back where they typically are in 2013, obviously if Payton returns.
- I’m sure many Buffalo Bills ..click here to read more

With a half of the NFL season in the books it is time for fantasy owners to get serious and bear down for what lies ahead. Some of you may be in pretty good shape, riding a high and having a good record, sitting back and waiting for the playoffs. Some of you are in the middle, every win and every loss are critical, and with every one yard gain you cringe, every dropped pass makes you scream, oh and that share time with RBs? Yes just makes you want to cripple that rookie who is stealing your man’s time. Others, well you are playing spoiler and trying to take others down. No matter where you are on this food chain, it never hurts to have a little more advice.

The run for the Lombardi Trophy is underway. The proverbial starting gate has been sprung open, and the 32 NFL teams are fighting for position. As it is said in the NFL, the season is a marathon and not a sprint. A team can not win the Super Bowl in four games, but an early loss can come back to haunt the team later when it comes down the stretch for playoff positioning.
There are 12 more games to go, and the NFL is at the quarter pole. Of course, my being a horse racing fan, I am going to use a little horse racing jargon. I can’t help myself.
The race to the Super Bowl to me is like the Kentucky Derby. After all, there is all the pomp and circumstance with both events, etc. As the Derby is 1 1/4 ..click here to read more

Since it is the off-season for the NFL, the “experts,” and bloggers like myself are coming up with items like lists, and power rankings. Even former NFL players who one would think would know something about the game make somewhat questionable statements, like former Giant receiver Amani Toomer did when he said that Dallas QB Tony Romo is a better quarterback than Giants QB Eli Manning.
I am guessing Mr.Toomer wants to be like former Giants teammate, the disgruntled RB Tiki Barber, and make controversial statements just to hear himself talk. Then again, I don’t remember Toomer getting a Super Bowl ring being on the same team as Tony Romo. I thought it was Eli Manning who led that magnificent 4th Quarter comeback in Super Bowl 42, and threw the winning touch down to Plaxico Burress. That team was the Giants, ..click here to read more

On July 23, 2012, WWE will be presenting the 1000th episode of its flagship show, “Monday Night Raw.” The episode will be three hours long, and will feature not only clips from past episodes of the show, but also returns of past Raw stars. Already advertised for the show is the return of D Generation X, featuring Triple H, and WWE Hall of Famer, Shawn Michaels. This particular show will also start Raw being three hours, instead of two each week. I am very skeptical of the move. It worked wonders for WCW when they did the same thing, but that’s Vince and USA for you.
Another event that is going to happen is the naming a permanent Raw/Smackdown GM, as most everyone who has been following WWE knows, John Laurinitis has finally been fired by Vince McMahon at No Way ..click here to read more

Alright, so we’re not even in training camp yet. So what? You’re like me: so happy to see something debatable and NFL-related, you’ll gobble it up like a street urchin on table scraps. Debate and speculation for a forthcoming NFL season are always fun, and consider this a handy primer on certain off-season moves that you may have missed. As always, this is one man’s opinion, and one man’s opinion alone.
1. New England Patriots (2011 record: 13-3)
Las Vegas projected wins: 12
Biggest free agent move: While Brandon Lloyd and Joseph Addai are attractive additions to a highly-efficient offense, the signing of defense end Jonathan Fanene from the Bengals may be even more potent. The Patriots let 33-year old Andre Carter walk, despite having ten sacks and a Pro Bowl selection. Fanene, through an injury-plagued career, gutted out 6.5 sacks ..click here to read more

Wow! That is all I can say after the last week plus in the NFL. The moves, shake-ups, suspensions, trades, and non-trades are making for one of the craziest off-seasons in quite some time. If you don’t lock yourself onto ESPN or NFL Network every second of the day you are sure to miss a lot.
As you all know, all these moves will somehow affect Fantasy Football drafts, good or bad, and you will have to start now to be able to get a grip on it. I’m here to try and catch you up on who is where and what impact it will have come time for the new season to begin.

As I am getting ready for a couple of major sporting events, WrestleMania 28 in Miami, and the race known as the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports, also known as the “Run for the Roses,” or simply known as the Kentucky Derby, I did learn a lesson about the NFL. NFL Network’s Rich Eisen is right.
There is NO offseason for the NFL. There were so many things that happened just in the past week or so: Peyton Manning finally settled on a team. Tim Tebow was traded to another team, and even had a press conference Monday. The Saints got pounded for “BountyGate” by the Commissioner. One of the best Wide Receivers the Pittsburgh Steelers ever had. retired. That is a lot of news to make in a week. Well, in this blog, I have something ..click here to read more

The Great White Way is a comedic backstage musical about second chances, finding inspiration in unlikely places and following your heart, no matter where it may lead.
In the locker room of Met Life Stadium, Tim Tebow, an aspiring NFL quarterback, irons jersey’s for the New York Jets, a team who is led by starting quarterback Mark Sanchez, who has lead his team to two consecutive AFC Championship appearances in two of his first three years in the league. Tim Tebow stars as the great white shark that terrorizes Mark Sanchez, the Jets fan base, and the Jets organization. Timmy’s pedestrian life suddenly changes when he falls for Kim Kardashian, a reality-star vixen who’s ulterior motive is to end Tebow’s 24 years of virginity. Inspired by Kardashian’s journey and the legacy of her failed marriage to Baby Huey aka Kris Humphrey’s, Timmy ..click here to read more
